From the Rise of Skywalker, we know that Rey is the granddaughter of Palpatine. But before the Rise of Skywalker was released, people had theories about who she was related to. This is my list of the weirdest.
10. Rey isn't related to anyone
This theory is not the weirdest, but it is weird. Why would you think Rey wasn't related to anyone? I don't know. There's not really any more to say about this one.
9. Rey is a Skywalker and a Kenobi
For whatever reason, some people thought Obi-Wan Kenobi had a daughter who married Luke Skywalker, and Rey is their daughter. That is really weird.
8. Rey is a clone of Luke Skywalker
After Darth Vader cut off Luke's hand, some people thought that, somehow, Emperor Palpatine found his hand, and used it to create a clone of Luke Skywalker. And that clone was Rey.
7. Rey is Darth Vader's half sister
This is a really confusing story. Anakin's mother, Shmi Skywalker, had another child with her new husband, Cliegg Lars. And that child was Rey. But this is very confusing because Rey is way too young to have been born during the Clone Wars. So why would you think that?
6. Rey is the daughter of Captain Phasma and Poe Dameron
People thought, for whatever reason, Captain Phasma is the daughter of Luke and Leia, even though they're twins (gross). And when Captain Phasma grows up and becomes basically the leader of the stormtroopers, she also marries Poe Dameron, and Rey is their daughter. That is very unlikely.
5. Rey is the daughter of Captain Phasma and Luke Skywalker
So, this theory goes that Luke marries Mara Jade, a girl who was originally sent to kill him by Emperor Palpatine. Together, they had a child, and she was Rey. Then, when Rey grew up, Mara Jade became Captain Phasma. Why?
4. Rey is Darth Vader's granddaughter
Some people thought that, when he was Darth Vader, Anakin had another child. When that child grew up, Rey was her daughter. So they thought Rey was Darth Vader's granddaughter. That is weird.
3. Rey is Han Solo and Leia Organa's daughter
Other people thought Han and Leia had another child after Ben Solo. And they thought their other child was Rey. But they never actually had another child.
2. Rey is Obi-Wan Kenobi
After Obi-Wan Kenobi died, some people thought he was reborn as Rey. It is very weird. I don't know why they thought that.
1. Rey is Anakin Skywalker
This is the weirdest theory on this list because it doesn't make any sense. None of them really do make sense, but this one makes the least. It is very similar to the last theory, because it goes that Anakin was reborn as Rey, but it's still the weirdest.
Of course, non of these theories were right. Why would they be? They are just theories. Now that we know who Rey really is, we don't need to be making up these things anymore. I just wanted to write this post because the theories are funny. I hope you enjoyed it!
